More financial news at your fingertips

The economic crisis was one of the top stories of 2008, and continues to make headlines in 2009. MNN users can stay up-to-date on the latest news from the street with a new business subcategory called “Markets,” which adds even more specialized financial news from AP.

1. Ahead of the Bell stories offer an outlook for the day’s stock movements. Published between 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. EST, they feature economic indicators, analyst research and company news that could affect stocks, sectors or the entire market.

2. Sector Snaps, published between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. EST, provide market updates and spotlight newsmakers in various industries, including banking, airlines, retail, construction and more.

3. The Markets section also features Wall Street and overseas markets reports that are updated frequently throughout the day.
